Top tennis players are currently under quarantine ahead of the First Grand Slam of the year. While they have permission to train for 5-hours outside at the practice courts, they are mostly confined in their hotel rooms. So anyway they can entertain themselves is most welcome. World No.1 Novak Djokovic found a very interesting way to entertain himself.
Djokovic was challenged by a couple of his fans into a push-up battle. The Serb was out on the balcony in his Adelaide hotel, when he was spotted by his fans. This entire challenge was filmed and uploaded on YouTube.
One the fan was heard saying to Djokovic, “We do one and then you do one.” To which Djokovic responded, ‘Alright’. The fans first started with 10 pushups, and then it was Djokovic’s turn. The Serb easily managed to do 10 and proceeded to complete 34 push-ups in total, handily defeating the fans in this duel.
